THREAD on #Russia/n Orthodox Church (ROC) breaking off “eucharistic communion" w/ #Constantinople Patriarchate.
1.CAVEAT: I don’t claim to be an expert in church relations but being Orthodox Christian & working on #Russia-related politics/policies I feel entitled to share few of my own observations esp in the face of mounting ignorance or propaganda from some of the usual "Russia watchers"
2. Within next days you will hear 3 dominating narratives on what came to be called "the new schism":
A.Patriarch Kirill is KGB (somewhat true).
B. ROC is a tool of #Kremlin (true).
C. Conflict emerged as aftermath of “#Russia trying to make #Ukraine submissive” (yes & no)

In the late 80's and early 90's most #Trump headlines looked like this.
By the late 90's and early 2000's it was reported that he had become a billionaire, no longer in debt. Not before filing 2 bankruptcies and announcing many projects that were never built.

1. The Kremlin uses Russian Orthodox bikers also known as “Putin’s bikers” as para-military pro-Putin forces domestically and internationally since at least 2012.

🦉🦉🦉Explaining #Kremlin #propaganda technique “political pluralism imitation.” The Russian-state owned and funded mass media has been employing this model in #Russia for a while. Lately, the Kremlin-linked agents are implementing it in the US and other Western countries. 👇
1. In Putin’s Russia, the political discourse is suppressed.
2. Unlike the USSR ideologists, the Kremlin propagandists understand the importance of the public opinion and positive image. “The sublimation of emotions on a political topic” is an important part of the engineered collective mentality.

This is significant because it ties the #NRA operation to the #EndMagnitsky operation, and all by way of #Kremlin’s own @DanaRohrabacher...And to put a bow on top of it, both operations link to @DonaldJTrumpJr and the #TrumpTower meeting. @WendySiegelman 👏

👇🧠⚡Thread on new #InformationWarfare #narratives: Many are wondering about the latest development: #Helsinkisummit, #Putin’s visit, #Trump’s open support of #Russia, etc. Is he insane? No. Russian psychological war manuals are hard to find. The sum up of the latest strategy:
A new strategy: Brainwashing Trump’s base and the rest of the society into whitewashing and normalizing Putin’s Russia. The new narrative is “Yes, Trump works with Putin. It is perfectly normal. Russia is a friend. Putin is good. Thank you, Russia, for helping Trump.”
This is how it is achieved—in the broad daylight. (The silence of the press does not help.)

Democrats are against your attack on farmers, your brutalizations of the elderly and the sick with your ACA vandalism, your additional trillion dollars our kids will have to pay down while fighting the ravages of climate change, your failure on net neutrality, oh and treason.
Democrats are against your @POTUS’ inhumane border policies, your attempts to privatize and then loot the VA, your failure on DACA. And you know what dude, your #TaxScam didn’t really put more money in our pockets.
Democrats are against your attempts to turn our schools into labor camp training grounds, your failure to keep @POTUS in the realm of basic human decency. Democrats oppose your restrictions to free trade, your lack of patriotism, your pro-Putinist foreign policy debacles.
